Coverage 2019

The 1st edition of the Polish Sustainability Confex 2019  organized by European Conferences United is behind us. Over 160 people decided to participate at this event.

Video Coverage:

The goal of the meeting was to support specialists from FMCG sector companies, inspire them to create a better tomorrow, where the use of sustainable development  was discussed from a production, packaging and supply chain perspective, and how not only organizations but also solution providers will be the driving force behind creating and increasing business value.

We discussed about sharing economy, circular economy amongst other things and the fact that being sustainable is a company strategy, not just individual responsibility, and how climate change concerns us not only as individuals but also as businesses.

We also agreed that innovative solutions that build company value are not only product solutions, but above all business models that take into account the expectations of consumers – expectations that we will be less harmful to the environment and in return build positive value.

We had the pleasure to host retailers for whom caring for the environment is extremely important, such as: Carrefour, Auchan, Lewiatan, Ikea, Eurocash, Tesco, Kaufland, as well as producers who have based their business strategy on sustainable development for years, including Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Kompania Piwowarska, Coca-Cola and Henkel. Special guests included the CEO of WWF in Poland and the Kozminski University which was represented by prof. Boleslaw Rok Director of the Entrepreneurship Research Center Positive Impact of the Department of Entrepreneurship and Business Ethics. A number of industry associations were also present, including Union of Employers of the Packaging Industry and Products in Packaging EKO-PAK.

This year, for the first time, during the evening Gala we awarded the Sustainability FMCG Award and the Sustainability Solution Provider Award for projects presented at conferences and selected by participants.

Congratulations to the winners!
